When you’re thinking wagon (or in Audi’s case, Avant) the ‘RS’ badged estate from the Audi brand is the ‘it’ wagon of the moment. Leading the pack of German marques in style, tech, and raw power, the OttOmobile announcement earlier this year of the RS6 (C6) Avant brought a huge grin to my face, as my collection was lacking many models from the marque that sports the RS badge. The Audi RS6 Avant features a massive 5.0 V10 FSI bi-turbo motor, producing a whopping 580 horses and 650 ft. lbs. of torque! So how did OttOmobile do?
The exterior of the OttOmioble replica is covered in OEM Audi Sepang Blue Metallic, and let me tell you, it’s more beautiful in person than words can describe. Paint is smooth and clean throughout. The silver accent paint used around the windows and rood rails is clean for the most part, though there are a few small areas where the paint is inconsistent. Overall shape is true to the original car, I see no glaring issues. Let me tell you, this thing is quite long at about 11 inches in length and weight is substantial too.
With the model being a sealed resin piece, shutlines and panel gaps are perfect. So perfect, that they are in fact better than the 1:1 – especially where the front hood meets the bumper. The front fascia features the now typical Audi grille. Unfortunately, this model is fitted with a solid piece, no perforated bits are found here. Headlights are nicely detailed, featuring the xenon adaptive tech. If I had to point out a slight miss, the lower chin spoiler (left and right fins) on the model isn’t as pronounced as the 1:1 – though this is a very slight detail.
Rear execution is much like the front, taillights and appropriate badging are crafted with care. A nice touch from the OttOmobile team was to include tinted windows on the model, definitely a bonus and keeps true to the original RS6 C6.
The wheels on the RS6 are known by Audi enthusiasts as peelers resembling a typical peeling tool found in your kitchen. Execution is brilliant along with the carbon rotors and massive front calipers. Well done! BUT there was a problem; the old quality woes from OttOmobile once again make an appearance, and my model has some severe chipping on the driver front and rear passenger side wheels. On the plus side, the after sale service from OttOmobile is better than most manufactures today, and I already have a new pair of wheels on the way. Thank you.
Interior of the Audi RS6 features the epic Recaro buckets in light grey. This theme flows to the rear and door cards as well. The RS6 logo is also found in the headrests, front and rear, but OttOmobile overlooked the Audi rings/logo in the center of the steering wheel. For the most part, the interior is appointed well, and proves to replicate the original car for the most part.
The Audi RS6 Avant isn’t for everyone. But a huge German car fan like me truly knows the significance of the model here. Audi has come a long way over the last 3-4 years, and the Audi RSR C6 is one of many epic wagons to come from the brand, and I for one am looking to add as many to my collection as I can. I like this piece, and I think you will too. Enjoy the pics!
